What is crowdfunding?

Story

Following the advice of the British Equestrian Federation all lessons and courses at Overdale Equestrian Centre were cancelled with effect 24-March-2020, in response to the Coronavirus Precautions. Lessons and courses are our main source of income. To provide these lessons and courses we have a team of 10 horses, which includes one youngster. To reduce our costs we have put our staff on Furlough, but the horses remain on site and require feed and care, along with ongoing farrier/veterinary services. Mary Wanless & myself, Karin Major are undertaking these tasks, with a little help from our tractor driver. We have turned several horses away to grass, and are working with local landholders to obtain more grazing, this should reduce our feed costs. Our own fields need to recover from a hard and wet Winter before they are safe to graze (short stressed Spring grass is dangerous as it causes laminitis, which can be fatal).

We are therefore seeking financial assistance with the costs associated with keeping the Equine Team fed and healthy. If you have ever ridden with us, or would like to in the future, or if you just feel you could help, then please do so.

    Many thanks to everyone, we have exceeded our target, when we add in some contributions that came direct rather than through this page. We are also pleased to advise that both Mary and Karin are now taking bookings for Private Lessons from June onwards. Contact riding@overdale-equestrian.co.uk to reserve your place. In the meantime, keep listening to the podcasts and doing the exercises.

    Thanks to everyone, we are now 92% of our way to our target of £5,000. Can you help us raise the remaining £400? It is looking like we’ll be able to start teaching Private Lessons again soon. Karin is currently self isolating and 6 of the horses grazing away from the yard. We are taking provisional bookings from 1-June onwards, so please email riding@overdale-equestrian.co.uk, or call 01993 832520. Remember Mary’s FREE PODCASTS are available at https://dressagetraining.tv/coaches/mary-wanless-podcast/ Enjoy & see you soon.

    Supporters, you are amazing and generous. In addition to the £3,570 you have donated via JustGiving, we have received a further £157, taking our total up to £3,727 which is close to 75% of our target. The horses in the photo have now cleared that field of grass and moved back onto some of the Overdale EC land. Hopefully this will only be for a few days, as the grass is limited there. We have now been offered another field, which we need to fence securely and organise water. Thank you once again. To help us further please share.

    I want to thank Mary Wanless for her podcasts. They have changed my internal language. I’m in America so can’t travel right now, but when possible I would love to train with you.
